Instruction video on updates in Delta

We now would like to share an instruction video, explaining Delta and the new possibilities more thoroughly. The video contains recordings that were made on the 28th of May, during an online demonstration for a small group of University staff.

Institutional Collaboration Projects 
New Reporting documents available

Have you been granted an Institutional Collaboration Project? We recently published multiple new helpful reporting documents for you on our website. We decided to offer these documents online, as we feel they should be accessible to all. 

We have published the following documents: 

Reporting guidelines for institutional collaboration projects (203.3 kB)
Guidelines mid-term evaluation for institutional collaboration projects‌ (93.6 kB)
Financial format for institutional collaboration projects (69.7 kB)
Form for change of team members or contact details‌ (62.8 kB)
Format to report on changes in outcomes and outputs‌ (80.5 kB)

Changes in mid-term evaluations  
Among the uploaded documents are also the guidelines for the mid-term evaluation. Due to Covid-19 we made a few changes for mid-term evaluations. According to the Grant Obligations & Conditions, all projects of 2 years or more were supposed to carry out an external evaluation, this has changed. You can now choose between internal or external freely, as long as all partners agree. Projects that should submit the evaluation together with Report 1 - from 2 years (24 months) till 2 years and 4 months (28 months) - may choose whether they to do the evaluation or not. All projects that last longer than 2 years and 4 months have to submit the evaluation with Report 2.
